Chris Gosnell

Always blonde or sometimes with pink hair, I’m sure to stand out in a crowd!  Though not natively born in Colorado, I hope to never leave this beautiful state.  I just love this place.  I live here with an amazing group of friends who have become extended family, like my BFFs, Tarah, Cara and Cherish.  I can’t forget to mention my spoiled, lovely, adorable dog Dora, who demands to be carried to bed when too sleepy to walk herself.  

Food is my love language coupled with my love to laugh and have tons of fun.  I truly believe that the secret to life is to love God and love people.  I am a total sci-fi nerd: Star Wars, Star Trek, Brown Coats and Sonic Screwdrivers are some of my favorites. You’ll often find me out in nature; endurance running, hiking or paddleboarding.  Come say hello!

Chris loves to help her clients create Reels! She has a great program that actually gives the clients prompts and exactly what they need to create their Reels. Then Chris and her team edit them! This changes the clients social media strategy and helps them get in front of potential clients.
